Report: Cheryl Cole Close to Becoming 'X Factor' Judge

Chris Jackson/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The X Factor could soon hire its third judge.

British pop star Cheryl Cole, who's currently a judge on the U.K. edition of Simon Cowell's singing competition, is close to a deal to fill the same role on the upcoming Fox version, according to Variety. The publication says the contract is being drawn up and that an announcement will be made once the deal is finalized.

Cole's involvement in The X Factor comes as no surprise -- judge L.A. Reid recently said Cole would serve on the panel, though he later backtracked.

There will be a total of four judges on the show, including Cowell.
